Since Jay-Z's claim to fame is entendres and witty wordplay let's compare Jay's lyrical prime in yall opinion with Reasonable Doubt against Lupe Fiasco's mixtape series.
I mean Jay's shit is pretty cool and clever.. Lotta drug references. But I think that Lupe blows him out the water. Jay got a book called Decoded filled with a lot of corny pointless lines that we all probably already caught but Lupe has entire verses and songs that will go over your head to this day. Literally, every time I listen to these mixtapes I catch something new 8 years later.
Whose wordplay are yall taking?
Lupe's wordplay on the Fahrenheit series was far more advanced than anything Jay-Z ever did 34 votes
